According to the calendar, we are past the midpoint of spring but according to the gardening data, we have not reached the high level of safety for avoiding frosts.  The trees and bushes are cautious.  Most are at least into early leaf but it is early in the season for plants.


I took this picture on Saturday.  I expected the riding mower to disturb the petals nicely scattered across the ground and it did.  Small fruit trees in full blossom make me think of brides and weddings. Of course, the trees and other plants have their own sense of what to do when.  It is still two weeks before the traditional summer begins for many resorts and parks, "Memorial Day to Labor Day".
